Episode 1296
Topic N/A
Air Date April 9, 1973
Guests None

Mister Rogers arrives with a special kind of typewriter used to create text for a teleprompter. While he waits for Mr. McFeely to deliver the paper needed for such a machine, he sings A Place of My Own. When Mr. McFeely arrives, he shows Mister Rogers how to insert the paper and they demonstrate how the large type is created.

With Francois Clemmons out of town, Mister Rogers checks on his studio where he plays the electric piano and looks at various pictures his friend has displayed on the wall. When Robert Delgado stops by to ask about singing lessons, Mister Rogers takes his contact information to provide to Mr. Clemmons.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Yoshi Ito asks King Friday XIII for some time away from her role as royal pilot in order to focus her attention on her opera studies. King Friday requests the assistance of Reardon who will provide lessons to Ms. Ito.

Handyman Negri expresses interest in participating in an opera and the King allows him to choose a role. Handyman Negri suggests that he would like to live on a farm in an opera. Handyman Negri shows his appreciation by singing a "handsome" version of You Are Pretty.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers looks at pictures from various Neighborhood operas.


Notes

  • King Friday slightly blurs the line between Make-Believe and reality when he tells Yoshi Ito that Reardon lives "somewhere in reality."
